The Thing About Love by Julie JamesTwo undercover FBI agents can hide who they are from everyone but each other in the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Suddenly One Summer.
FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and cocky Army ranger clashed during their training at Quantico, gladly going their separate ways after graduating from the Academy. Six years later, the last thing either of them expects is to run into each other again–assigned to work as partners in a high-profile undercover sting.
For both of them, being paired with a former rival couldn’t come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they’ll have to find a way to work as a team–a task that becomes even trickier when they’re forced to hole up at a romantic, beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a whole lot more complicated. . .

The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn't my cup of tea. I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. Okay, so those are kind of sexy. Tall, dark, and handsome doesn't change the fact that he's arrogant, cocky, and rude. Not that I care, but he's made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no. Turns out no isn't an option.
Thank you! Two FBI agents who had a rocky relationship at the FBI Academy are paired in an undercover operation, forcing them to re-evaluate their first impressions, work as a team, and maybe find true love. At first old hostilities fly—behind closed doors, since both agents are consummate professionals—and they must figure out how to work together as partners, but as they do, they come to trust and respect each other, then give in to their growing attraction. After all, neither is looking for a real relationship, especially since John will likely be moving to Virginia. James It Happened One Wedding , , etc.

But what exactly is romantic love? Researchers are increasingly interested in this question, and the answer is not at all clear. Everyone from Plato to Taylor Swift has pondered the meaning of love. But, in the last two decades, researchers in the humanities and across the social, behavioural and cognitive sciences have also investigated romantic love.
